Check Your Status

Staff members of the Moritz College of Law Office of Admissions and Financial Aid are available to answer questions relating to the application process and admission standards. Due to the high volume of requests, applicants are strongly encouraged to check the status of their application by referring to the ApplicantĀ Online StatusĀ Page.

The Office of Admissions will notify applicants by e-mail when their application has been received and processed. The email will include log in information for the online status page. It is important that the applicant provides the office with a current e-mail address and checks their e-mail regularly. While the Office of Admissions seeks to keep applicants informed of their status, it is the applicant’s responsibility to make sure the application is received by the relevant deadline.

The Moritz College of Law Admissions Committee renders admissions decisions on a rolling basis after the application file is received and is complete (with supporting documents, such as the CAS report). This process can take anywhere between six to ten weeks, based on the volume of applications. Early decision applicants will receive a decision by December 19. Early admissions applicants will receive their decisions by January 30. Applicants will be notified of their decision via e-mail and decisions will be posted on the online status page. We will not provide decisions over the phone. We will only release information to applicants unless an applicant as indicated in writing a specific individual who may inquire information on their behalf.

Contact with the Moritz College of Law Office of Admissions may be made by phone at (614) 292-8810 or e-mail at lawadmit@osu.edu. The Office of Admissions is staffed Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. ET.
